This afternoon 16 children from Years 3 to 6 travelled to Swain House Primary School to take part in the Bradford East One Football Tournament hosted by Sports UK. It was a fantastic afternoon of sports with a number of School teams taking part from the local area. The games were played over 3 pitches for Years 5 and 6 and 3 more pitches for Years 3 and 4 – both Blakehill teams playing on the pitch 2s.
The Year 3 and 4 (consisting of James, Archie, Ashton, Jake, Lucas, Molly , Ellis and Ben) had fantastic afternoon winner in every game that they played, the results were:
And after winning in the final too they ended up coming away as overall winners of pitch 2.
One individual stood out from the crowd and was noticed by the referees and the Sports UK staff for their fantastic contribution, skill, sportsmanship and team spirit it was Molly from Year 4! She receive the girl player of the tournament award and should feel very proud of herself for her achievements.
Years 5 and 6 had a bit of a trickier start to tournament. Their teams was made up of Billy (the next Joe Hart), Joel, Steven, Joe, Aaron, Jake, Ben and Hayden. They drew their first 3 games before clenching a win to take them to the final and what a final it was! Blakehill to and early 1-0 lead but in the final moments of the game Thorpe Primary scored an equalizer that took the game to penalties! It was tense as we started we were neck and neck…
It went to sudden death and after two extremely tense penalties and fantastic save by Billy Blakehill took the win.
Well done to all the children and schools that took part and a massive well done to the children of Blakehill for player so well as a team and working hard to do their best.
